Hey stevelandis, I was at the rally last year try and make it if you can. **** I'd even meet ya halfway if possible. It was a terrific time and Jay introduced me to the Amish on a ride. Woke up to the clip clop of the horses hoves outside our window. Hey OCC went on a ride Presidents day with a fellow, with a OCC Chopper. A little cold but hey this time of year what can you expect. I brought a friction drive a chinese knockoff scooter and a EZ Motorbike(manual) just show up there will deffinetly be spares to ride. Maybe a small benzimatic torch, mapp gas is hot. I think I'd try a few diffent approaches before cutting pipe.
